The Doblo is based on a van and that should tell you much of what you need to know about its place in the market. As well as making 'Doblo' look like a perfectly sensible name, rival models like Peugeot's Partner Tepee, Citroen's Berlingo Multispace and Ford's Grand Tourneo Connect offer similar no-frills practicality at prices that attract families on tight budgets. This Fiat looks good on prie against these competitors though, with the range starting at under £15,000. As before, there's a choice of five or seven-seat models and the option of a higher roof height if you want it.
As for equipment, well even the base 'Pop' trim gets Start&Stop, remote central locking, electric front windows and a 60/40 split rear seat as standard. In terms of safety, every Dobl?? is equipped with ESC (Electronic Stability Control), ASR (Anti Slip Regulation), HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assist), a Hill Holder clutch, ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), front airbags and a TPMS 'Tyre Pressure Monitoring System'. Furthr up the range on 'Easy' variants, you'll find eatures like body-coloured bumpers front and rear, front fog lights, body-coloured electric door mirrors, steering wheel audio remote controls and a height adjustable driver's seat. The top 'Lounge' trim comes equipped with air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, an audio system upgrade including Bluetooth and USB/Aux-in connectivity, rear electric windows, power folding door mirrors, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, dark tinted windows and cruise control.
